Description & Specs

The following specs were carefully collected and recorded by a skilled technician. For a more detailed description and questions regarding sound, feel, or cosmetic condition, please call to speak to one of our experts.

Summary

Finish: Although the guitar black lights evenly and old throughout (bright green/yellow), suggesting that the finish is untouched (except in the small areas of obvious black touchups), the finish on the maple top and holly headstock veneer exhibit a slightly different texture and checking. Because of this, we believe that those parts of the guitar were either clear lacquer oversprayed and/or buffed, probably to make it shiny looking again at some point in the past.

Top Material: Maple Top

Body Material: Mahogany Body

Body Details: One piece mahogany body with maple cap.

Neck Material: Mahogany Neck

Fingerboard Material: Ebony

Electronics: Original patent number sticker pickups and original wiring with 1969 pot codes.

Pickup Measurements: neck 7.8k ohms bridge 7.9k ohms

Hardware: Original

Weight: 9 lbs 7.5 oz

Modifications / Repairs: -The top of the body and the headstock veneer appear to have been oversprayed and/or buffed. -There are small black finish touchups on the top around the edges of the body, under the bridge, on the headstock and on the back of the neck opposite the 12th fret.

Case Details: Original hard shell case.

Cosmetic Condition: The guitar has moderate play wear. There is considerable finish checking on the top of the body, the sides and the back of the neck and headstock. The back of the body has moderate buckle rash. There are numerous small finish touchups throughout the body and neck. These were probably to cover areas where the finish chipped off due to checking. The metal hardware is nicely tarnished with age. There is a large area of finish chipped off the back of the neck. One corner of the neck pickup ring is cracked, but the ring is still fully functional.

Serial Number: 886069

Tech Notes: -The guitar plays well with low action. The frets are small with light play wear. -The serial number dates to 1968.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
